Our First Hope Story!

A gentleman entered our Shalom House Transitional Living Program in early April – one of our first clients since the facility had opened. The man had been homeless for quite some time, and while he was unemployed due to certain limitations, he was seeking part-time work to help move him toward greater stability and independence.

Through Shalom House’s Employment Placement programming, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas provided the man with interview preparation, coaching, clothing and confidence! In addition, the program referred him to a local pizza restaurant where he will soon begin work as a prep cook.

We are excited to share that this is our first Shalom House success story, with hopefully many more to come!
